Divorce is a time of emotional and psychological upheaval for the spouses. A time when it may be difficult for them to approach the divorce intellectually rather than through the raw emotions that these proceedings create. It would be in a spouse’s best interest to have the assistance of a family law attorney during their divorce. A qualified attorney will provide you with guidance through the proceedings. You will have the assurance of knowing your rights under the law. An experienced family law attorney will assist you in attempting to reach a fair and full settlement of all issues involved in your divorce, thereby eliminating the need for a trial. If your case does not settle and you are forced to go to trial, you will have the assurance of having an experienced family law attorney at your side during the trial.
Along with the many emotional and psychological issues that accompany divorce, there are a number of extremely important issues that not only affect the present but will also have a long term effect on one’s life in the future. These are the issues of division of community assets and liabilities; separate property; whether either spouse is eligible for spousal maintenance and if so how much and for how long; whether or not either spouse has wasted community assets, and whether either spouse should be required to pay some or all of the other spouse’s legal fees and expenses. For spouses that have children in common, the issues of custody, visitation and child support are of prime importance.

Many people do not know what to look for when they are considering which attorney to hire. Their divorce places them in a very stressful situation and it may be one that they have not experienced before. Making an important decision during this particularly stressful time can be very difficult. So choosing the right lawyer is critical as not all lawyers have the same level of experience and not every lawyer is right for every case. In family law cases, it is extremely important for the client and the attorney to have a good working relationship and to be able to understand each other.
The family law attorneys at Schill Law Group have many years of experience in divorce cases. Some attorneys in other firms practice in a number of areas of law such as criminal defense and civil litigation. They may be competent in one or more areas, but they do not have the concentrated experience that an attorney that practices exclusively in one area has obtained. The family law lawyers at Schill Law Group only practice this type of law and are able to handle your case effectively while being sensitive to you and the experience that you are going through during the divorce process.
